Gut feel when hiring.

  1. Tell me the story of your life
  • what decisions did you made a long the way and why you made them
  1. Tell me about the most difficult problems you worked on and how you solved them.
  • the people that really solved the problem, they know exactly how they solved the problem. They know the little details.
  • and the people who didn’t can only go one level, and then they get stuck

Biggest challenge in life?
– how to spend time…
– making sure you have corrective feedback loop and maintaining over time even when people tell you what you want to hear

You can hear these at the end of this video (~30min mark)
